Spin Reviews Fool's Gold

7/26/2011

The upcoming album for IAMSOUND artist Fool's Gold was recently reviewed by Spin: "Not to be confused with Fool's Gold Records, this Los Angeles quintet distilled a refreshing blend of African influences and Hebrew-language vocals on their 2009 self-titled debut. Featuring three members of indie-rock vets Foreign Born, Fool's Gold sidesteps here toward shiny '80s pop- sung in English- on their sophomore album. Synths glimmer on 'Street Clothes': the title track has that Smiths/R.E.M. jangle. Though still sunny and hooky, Leave No Trace lacks the enigmatic spark of its predecessor, especially now that the words are more readily understandable." -Mark Hogan

The upcoming sophomore album Leave No Trace is set for release on IAMSOUND Records August 16th.
